Although most of the main characters’ stories received good conclusions, some unanswered questions left fans disappointed. The site chose some of these gaps.


Here are 5 questions that How I Met Your Mother did not answer:

7th What really happened to Ted and that pineapple?

how i met your mother ted

In the tenth episode of the first season, Ted have a night with Trudy. After many drinks the night before, he wakes up the next morning with a pineapple on the nightstand and a mysterious girl in his bed.

The case of the mysterious girl is solved, but not the pineapple. So what happened? The mystery was revealed in an excluded scene where we discover that Ted stole the pineapple from the captain’s house that same night.

This revelation doesn’t make a lot of sense, since Captain and Zoey don’t appear in the series for a long time after that episode.

6th What happened to Robin’s friends?

In the iconic scene from the first episode of, Ted notices Robin across the room. Right now, Robin is talking to some friends.

Who were these people? Why do we never see them again? Does she just forget about all her friends when she joins Ted’s group?

5th What did Tracy die from?

We know that Tracy she gets sick when we see Ted visiting her at the hospital, but the details of the illness that took her life were never revealed. Do children learn how their mother died?

Of course, the series is called “How Your Mother Died”, but considering that we wait nine long seasons to finally meet her, we feel that we deserve to know the reason for her death.

4th Who is the mother of Barney’s baby?

Fans were impressed with the revelation that Barney has a baby at the end of the series. It was almost a cruel twist of fate for him to have a daughter, after the years he spent taking advantage of women.

Unfortunately, we never found out who the baby’s mother is, which is disappointing considering the many, many women he was with during the series.

3rd Why did Tracy leave in the middle of the wedding?

how i met your mother tracy

Ted was in the rain after leaving the wedding reception, and that was also when he met Tracy – who was supposed to be playing in the band for Barney and Robin’s wedding.

How did she get out in the middle of the reception? We don’t know much about Tracy, but she seemed passionate about her work and doesn’t seem to be doing anything so unprofessional.

2nd What is Barney’s job at Goliath National Bank?

After much speculation, it was finally revealed that Barney was honest about his role in GNB all the time. Every time someone asked what he was doing there, he responded with “please”, which seemed to be his way of avoiding the question.

But in season 9, episode 15, entitled “”, it was revealed that his role was to provide legal justifications and sign everything, which means that he was a legal scapegoat for his company’s corrupt activities.

Even with this brief explanation, Barney’s career as a whole remains questionable.

1st Why doesn’t Ted from the future speak with Bob Saget’s voice?

When we finally see Ted ending his long story with the kids, Ted is talking like the actor Josh Radnor, no Bob Saget, who did the narration throughout the series.

This question is an obvious gap in the continuity of the series, so the relevant question here is probably to address why we need Bob Saget’s voice?
